Presidential Search Update
The Presidential Search Committee has completed its interviews of semi-finalist presidential candidates. Based on submitted materials, multiple reference checks, and the recent interviews, the Committee has selected four finalist candidates to visit campus in the upcoming weeks. The specific dates of the campus visits are as follows:
- Candidate #1: October 31 - November 2
- Candidate #2: November 7 - 9
- Candidate #3: November 11-13
- Candidate #4: November 14-16
The purposes of these campus visits are two-fold. First, they will enable us to get to know the candidates better, and secondly, the visits provide an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate the opportunities and benefits that Juniata offers a new president. The visits will include meetings with representatives of each of Juniata's constituencies, tours of the campus and community, and an open forum session which will include a brief presentation from each candidate and an opportunity for Q&A. The campus visit schedules are currently being detailed, but for your planning purposes, the open forum time will be at 4:15 p.m. on the second day of each visit. Those who participate in sessions with a candidate will be invited to provide feedback in a brief survey.
Throughout the search process, the Committee has pledged to protect the identity of candidates. At the time of the campus visits, their candidacy becomes a matter of public information on our campus. Using this website, we will inform the campus community of each candidate's identity, and provide their background information, on the day prior to their visit. We ask that everyone respect the notion that we will not openly publicize these visits beyond the campus community, and will discourage contacts with friends or associates who may know the candidates, in order to preserve the integrity of the search.
The Committee is currently scheduled to meet on November 30 and will make its recommendation to our Board of Trustees on December 1. The Committee is extremely pleased with the progress of the search, and we look forward to your support in this final phase.
